Key West Memories

Bound and labeled.  Key West Memories is done.  It's smooth and flat on the table - I think I can live without the freemotion quilting I had planned.  I really wanted the practice, but I did not like how the single layer of flannel and fabric looked when it was quilted.  Well, there will be other projects to quilt!  Something with a real batted sandwich.

I'm not fond table cloths that barely cover the top of the table (which, unfortunately, is most of the ones I own).  This one has lots of drape!  There's over a foot of overhang on the ends of the table.  Even when I add the leaf, there's still an extra 8-10" on the ends.

This table normally resides in a room with terrible lighting.  Rob was kind enough to help me lug it outside long enough to snap a few photos, then drag it back in again.  Crazy, I know.  Especially after a long day at work.  But it looks so much better in natural light!

This table comes out for big dinners but otherwise resides in the sewing room as a work table.  For now the quilt is on display - I can admire it ever time I walk through my sewing room.  I'm thinking of hitting it with some Scotchguard spray before serving tea on it.  I'm always spilling stuff, so any little thing that would help!

  1. It looks great! And I'll bet it brightens up the room with poor lighting, too. Was that all part of your plan? :)


I enjoy reading your comments and I strive to reply by email (if you're not set to no-reply).
